A NEW INSULATING MATERIAL.

The gradually decreasing supply of gutta percha, and the expense of vulcanite, porcelain, and glass insulating materials, have prompted many inventors to devise compositions which will fulfill the rigorous requirements imposed by the transmission of electrical energy at high voltages. Of the many new insulating materials which have been introduced of late is one which bears the name "Electrose," the invention of Louis Steinberger, of the Electrose Manufacturing Company, 127 North Tenth Street, Brooklyn, N. Y. Very careful and exhaustive tests of electrose made by experts in electrical engineering, would seem to show that the substanc
